"The 2013 edition of the Map brings together for the first time, in one place, all of the areas around Ireland affected by closures or recovery plans or additional gear requirements," says Michael Keatinge, Director of Fisheries and Training Services, BIM.
Other significant changes to this year's Map cover the inclusion of a fully revised and extended mesh size and catch composition table. There will also be new tables and diagrams covering the static year. A map for Nephrop Functional Units is also a new feature as is the Map's showing of six and twelve-mile fishing rights.
BIM has begun distributing copies of the 2013 Map. All registered vessels over 15 metres automatically receive a printed copy of the Map. Any other registered vessel owners interested in receiving a printed copy of the Map should contact their local BIM regional office.
